Spur of the Moment Pasta Salad

Thought I would share a pasta salad recipe that my daughter came up with last week.  Like all  mothers, many of her recipes are created spur of the moment, with the ingredients on hand.  Since Alan was out of town and Amanda was preparing meals for only Rachel and herself, she decided on pasta salad.

Spur of the Moment Pasta Salad
  "Amanda's Way"

1 package gluten free pasta (prepared according to label directions)
Small amount of nice-n-cheesy (amount of cheese differs according to how much pasta you have)
Poppy Seed Dressing
Lightly steamed vegetables of choice (She used carrots, broccoli, snap peas, onion, garlic)
Turkey or Chicken (already cooked and chopped) (optional)

Melt nice-n-cheesy in microwave and add poppy seed dressing to taste (or until preferred consistency).  Mix vegetables and pasta together and then drizzle dressing over the top.  You can serve this either hot or cold, but I personally prefer it hot.   Amanda added already cooked and chopped turkey to her serving.

Although this is a quick and simple recipe it is delicious.  Give it a try!

Lightly steamed vegetables

The finished product.  Delicious!
